Join EHS DramaT.I.C.S. for the Fall Play - Figments

Please join the Effingham High School DramaT.I.C.S. for their presentation of Figments, a hilarious comedy by Billy St. John. Rick Jacobs has a very overactive imagination. This usually helps him as a playwright, but this time it might, in fact, be contributing to his writers block! Also contributing to his writers block are interruptions from: the characters of his play, his overbearing mother, his deceased father, the girl with whom he is madly in love and stuck in the “friend zone” with and her super fit boyfriend. Will Rick get the show written and get the girl? Come find out!

When: 7:00 pm - October 30th, October 31st, and November 1st

October Student of the Month
The Effingham High School Student of the Month program began eight years ago to honor a group of students each month for each curricular area at Effingham High School. The faculty members in each department observe their students each month to make their selection. While grades are an important part of this selection, they are not the sole determination. Students are also evaluated on their sense of classroom citizenship, helpful nature to others, and whether they are giving their best effort, A or not.
